Truckster, the new SS type, with the inner sleeve and outer shell both SS is the only way to go. They are tough and there's nothing to break. Like Bernie, we have a 1 litre job and it cops a rough time but displays no visible damage an doesn't leak. It keeps the black stuff hot all day. We've taken a thermos full away on a trip, not got to it, and enjoyed a hot cuppa 10 hours later on arriving back at camp.

Being smaller, the cup versions don't work as well and we only get about 2 hours from them, but that's fine for the first one of the day.

I can't remember what we paid for ours but it wasn't a huge sum - twenty something dollars. You can spend over $100 but anything over $30 is a waste of your dough.Be good, or be quick.

Will try Supercheap Auto and Marlows.. those insulated cups with lids are T H E goods.. I have 6 of them, usually take 2 away with us, and 2 spares for friends, and 2 in the cupboard for the future!

Take care.

I was in Mitchells in Sydney today and saw the same model Thermos we have. They wanted $35 for it but Mitchells is a bit exy anyway. I don't reckon you need to pay more than $30 to get one that will do everything you'll ask of it.

Happy shopping.Be good, or be quick.

Must be metal cased what ever you buy , if you go for a cheaper unit spend the extra $ and buy a insulated wine bottle cooler to keep it in they really do help,same as a bag for the fridge I got a cooler for $10 at K mart also consider a wide mouth one for hot foods .Peter York 4x4

Thanks peter..
Yea I have a new theory on things, do it once do it right.

May cost you more up front, but saves you in the long run...
EG. buy a $10 unit, and have it die in 1 month, have to do this several times, or pay $50 once and have it last yrs.

Already got one of them wine cooler bags, good thinking dude!

Take care.

Truckster

See my reply to your earlier question about ciggy lighter things.

Thermos flasks work great and are cheap. If you combine them with a convenient little stove they make for a very quick fresh cuppa when you need it most.

Truckster,
went through 10 bad thermos's (but i might add cheap ones around $20) and a lot of grief, eg. pull up on the side of a track out in the middle of absolute no where and pour out a heap of beautifully crushed glass! i eventaully got the message and went against my own saying of( "i'm not paying 70 bucks for a bloody thermos") bought a nissan 1.8 lt stainless and couldn't be happier,fill it up with hot water and 12 hours later you can still enjoy a hot cuppa, no matter how rough the roads are ,there bullet proof and absolutely worth the money.

regards,
baz.

We boil water and put in 2 litre genuine Thermos stainless steel flasks for morning smoko. They are around $4x from memory but the water is still hot in the afternoon and to damn hot to drink. Tried cheapies and water did not stay hot enough. I have some Thermos brand stainless steel flasks about twelve years old. Recently bought some new screw on lids $3.80 each which is good to get spares so easily and cheap.
